“A Poet Muses”

My last post was titled “I Never Metapoem I Didn’t Like,” but in fact, I’ve met many poems I didn’t like, a lot of them my own. I can usually tell where the weak parts are but not always how best to fix them. Do I need another image? A better word? A different form? A complete overhaul? (Yikes!)

Because I like poetry, revising my poems is usually enjoyable even when challenging–not like revising that term paper for history class. Still, there are times….

A Poet Muses

So this is how it goes:
first the labor,
then the birth,
then the whole bloody afterbirth
of revising.

Peace to your ♥ !
